Big B's Sea-Link presence: What's the big deal?

Controversies, I believe, have their way of finding Amitabh Bachchan. Every few months, there are fresh controversies attacking him. Looks like they want to change his initials from AB to ABC (Amitabh Bachchan Controversial). But AB knows well how to deal with controversies and fights them off smartly and impressively. And I am so inspired!

This time, it has to do with Bandra-Worli Sea Link (also known as Rajiv Gandhi Sagari Setu). I can't believe all the latest news related to Mumbai's Bandra-Worli Sea Link extension talk more about Bachchan's presence at the inauguration instead of its benefits to the aam junta! What's the big deal? Why be disappointed at Amitabh Bachchan's mere presence at the occasion after inviting him in the first place? Why create such a drama like our television serials - "Agar mujhe pata hota woh aayengey, toh shayad main nahin aata"!

Instead of sharing the joy of the new four lanes on the sea link, we are debating AB's presence and Congress' alleged disappointment! Mumbai has seen many sorrowful incidents in the recent years. On rare occasions we have something to cheer about. Let's not spoil it. Let's share the joy of the infrastructure developments in Mumbai.
